For the record, Philip Rose is the pedophile who screen capped Amanda Todd and he admitted to being one of the cappers mention, perso365. Not a stretch when you coniser his fake name p rose and anagrammed spells perso. He stalked Amanda all over the net and you can see he is still obsessed with her. Since he cannot harm her anymore he turned his hate to her mother Carol, whom he is still stalking and has suggested she take a gun and shoot herself because it is her fault she died. It is his fault. He was so obsessed with her that he is still targeting her and he still thinks she is alive. He mentioned three places where she was put which he claimed he knew for a fact and one mentioned, Riverview, had been closed for quite awhile. He has repeatedly posted pictures of Amanda and her family and friends on wordpress blogs because he was removed from Facebook for stalking and bullying. In fact, he made a point of going to every group or page with Amanda's name on it and posted she was not dead. Her mother saw them and was devastated. He is king of the trolls and has admitted to sexually abusing over 9000 boys and girls online. He admitted he is perso365 and he stalked Amanda. He is dangerous and still targeting other young girls and boys online for his obsession. Just google his name and you will see how crazy this pedophile really is. Almost sixm months since her death and he is still targeting her and her family. He is the obsessed pedophile who started her journey to her death. Currently gathering info on him to provide to the police who are asking. If you have his IP we would be interested in that. A few other sites have given that over after reading what he posts. Thanks.

Interesting bit about Amanda Todd, but it tends to prove that the modern approach to social media is to believe everything that it supplies. You write: 'For several years, a group of men ranging from 16 to 30 years old communicated with Amanda through online chat forums.' OK - none of this is verifiable. The likeliest scenario (if it is, indeed, true) is that she was seen online in 2009-2010, possibly in 2011, which is maybe not several years. But where do you get the age range from? It's very specific. It's much more likely, and verifiably, to be 13-17 year olds on BlogTV, a huge majority of 16-24 year olds, with a few dirty old men who could be an any age. You more than likely got the 30 age from the rubbish put out by Anonymous. But they didn't communicate with her so much as she showed off to them. She was actually banned from BlogTV at one point for displaying too much, and the infamous video of her prancing round her bedroom shows no signs of coercion. But even that didn't put her off - so the idea of a bunch of 'predators' enticing her is absolute codswallop. You then write: 'These men are called “cappers,” individuals who lurk in chat rooms for the sole purpose of targeting an underage girl and pressuring her to strip in front of a webcam.' Not really true; they don't target girls, as they don't need to. Rumour has it that Ms Todd would do shows that said 'Flash at 1000 viewers', and, if you do your research, there are hundreds of girls doing it. So there's no need for pressure. But another thing you should be aware of: Ms Todd registered on a lot of these sites with different ages, not, at any point, confessing to be under-age.
'The cappers record the conversations and then trade the illegal content between themselves.' Mostly true, but I suspect that BlogTV and Stickam use their sites as feeders - see a site called cameracaptures.com. They get round the law by denying knowledge of the age of the girls.
'In the case of Amanda Todd, the cappers remained in contact with her for 2-3 years, with the sole purpose of blackmailing and harassing her. Two individuals were said to be the key players in this case, who began their blackmail assault by distributing illegally obtained videos, which contained nude image' None of this is verifiable. Again, you have picked up info from the Anonymous rubbish - Kody, perso, Viper, r0ra and so on - but again there is no verifiable link to Ms Todd. But where do you get the video distribution from? According to the story (LOL) it was ONE photo - nothing more. In fact, the Todds went out of their way to say it was only one photo. No mention of videos in the story. They do exist, of course.
The rest is baloney. As a social media expert, I ask you a couple of questions: how come, after more than two years of investigation, none of the supposed blackmailers were caught? You will know that, in order to contact all her friends and relatives - indeed, in order to blackmail in any way - there would have been a trail a mile wide, especially if it was over a period of time. Also - if you were petrified of online stalkers, socially anxious, contantly pestered with 'nowhere to turn', would you a) lie low? or b) make a YouTube channel announcing yourself as a target yet again, and do a 'never-ending story' line followed by a Pruitt pop song cover?
Just a penultimate point - if it hadn't been for trolls, none of the true story would have come out.
Lastly, it is, in a way, interesting to see how social media builds up myths. You have taken bits of data, re-constituted them, re-sorted them, and then made up your own unique story which you believe to be true when, in reality, nearly all of it is a pack of lies.
